Philosophy of Care
I truly appreciate establishing a partnership with both my patients and their families- open communication lines ultimately make for the best patient care. I feel that being educated regarding your condition can make you your own best advocate- you should ask questions about your care so that you can be in charge of your outcomes. Every person and situation is different, so I strive to recommend management plans which are tailored to the best interest of all the parties who are involved.
Dr. Dimitriades sees patients with allergic concerns, such as Food allergy, Seasonal allergies, Drug reactions, Stinging insect reactivity, Recurrent hives, Allergic asthma, and Atopic dermatitis.
Additionally, she has a special clinical interest in patients with concerns for Immune deficiency, Recurrent/severe/unusual infections, Low Immunoglobulins, Immune dysregulation diseases, or a Family history of immune deficiency. She is also involved with immune evaluations for the California Newborn screening program and for patients with various genetic syndromes, in particular 22q deletion syndrome.
Dr. Dimitriades' research interests include specific antibody deficiency and immune dysregulation syndromes with immune deficiency. Additionally, she is involved in quality improvement initiatives pertaining to food and drug challenges.
